The witness of Mary Magdalene, especially at the Resurrection of Jesus, is an icon of perseverance. She remains Faithful to God because she has experienced God’s fidelity to her.

Perseverance gives every good work its power. There is nothing stronger than kindness in the face of doubt.

O gracious God, may I rejoice today in the Good News that Jesus is truly risen from the dead. May I be perseverant as a disciple of Jesus.
